History of CKEditor project
The first version of CKEditor, under the name FCKeditor, was released in March 2003 by Frederico Caldeira Knabben, the creator of the editor and the project's Benevolent Dictator for Life. After crossing 3 million downloads, FCKeditor was completely reviewed and redesigned into CKEditor 3.0, with special attention given to performance, accessibility and a new UI. In December 2012, CKEditor 4.0 was released with an Inline Editing solution, reformatted source code, enhanced DOM and CSS performance. The server side implementations were removed.
CKEditor was previously called FCKeditor for the initials of its creator, Frederico Caldeira Knabben. It was renamed because in English "FCK" suggests "fuck", a rude word.
CKEditor uses YUI Graded Browser Support as the basis for its compatibility requirements. CKEditor 3.x is compatible with most internet browsers, including Internet Explorer 6.0, 7.0, 8.0, 8.0 Quirks, 9.0 (Windows), all major Firefox releases starting from 3.†, Safari 5.†, latest stable Google Chrome, latest stable Opera and Camino 1.0+ (Macintosh).
CKEditor has features found in desktop word processors such as: styles formatting (bold, italic, underline), web resource linking, a safe undo function, paste from Word and other common HTML formatting tools.
